    As a cyclist who was also hit by a vehicle, I know that signs on the back of lorries are not enough to prevent more deaths

    It’s a sad coincidence that just as I started to write this column about the yellow warnings to cyclists plastered over the backs of trucks, the news broke of the fourth fatality on London’s roads this year.
